This is internal documentation for deploying builds.sr.ht updates to the SourceHut hosted services.
When a patch for an image comes in, ensure that it meets all of the criteria set out in image maintenance before applying. Every step is essential to ensure that there is no downtime for any image while upgrading -- review the patch carefully.
The deployment process for new images is the following:
apk upgrade -U. At this point the new
image scripts are available and builds can be run against the new images.
When deprecating images, identify users who have submitted builds using the affected image in the past 90 days with a SQL query similar to the following:
JOIN "user" ON "user".id = job.owner_id
WHERE image = 'ubuntu/kinetic' AND job.created >= '2023-06-01'
ORDER BY job.created DESC;
Send an email to each affected user with two weeks notice before deploying an image deprecation. The compatibility.md matrix should be updated right away to remove the affected image, to avoid new users appearing during the notice period.
These are not updated automatically during deployments, when changed you need to deploy them manually. submit_image_build is stored in /usr/local/bin and the crontab runs on sircmpwn's account.
